13 CFR Part 121

RIN 3245-AG22

Small Business Subcontracting; Correction

AGENCY: U.S. Small Business Administration.

ACTION: Correcting amendment.


SUMMARY: The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) published a final 
rule in the Federal Register on July 16, 2013 (78 FR 42391), amending 
its regulations governing small business subcontracting. That document 
amended Sec.  121.411 without incorporating the amendments made to that 
section by a final rule published on June 28, 2013 (78 FR 38811), which 
unintentionally resulted in duplicate paragraphs. This document 
corrects the final regulations by properly designating the paragraphs 
in Sec.  121.411.

DATES: Effective May 23, 2014

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dean Koppel, Office of Government 
Contracting, U.S. Small Business Administration, 409 Third Street SW., 
8th Floor, Washington, DC 20416, (202) 205-7322, dean.koppel@sba.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 28, 2013, SBA published a final rule 
to implement provisions in the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 
pertaining to small business size and status integrity. 78 FR 38811. 
That rule amended 13 CFR 121.411 by adding new paragraphs (d) through 
(h). On July 16, 2013, at 78 FR 42391, SBA published a second final 
rule to implement provisions, also in the Small Business Jobs Act of 
2010, concerning subcontracting compliance. In pertinent part, this 
final rule amended 13 CFR 121.411. However, in so doing, SBA 
inadvertently failed to incorporate the new paragraphs added to Sec.  
121.411 by the final rule published on June 28, 2013. When SBA 
published the rule on July 16, 2013, the Agency should have amended 
Sec.  121.411 by revising paragraph (a), redesignating paragraphs (b) 
through (h) as paragraphs (c) through (i), and adding a new paragraph 
(b). As a result of the Agency's oversight, the current regulations in 
Sec.  121.411 contain two paragraphs (d). This correcting amendment is 
necessary to ensure the proper designation of the paragraphs in that 

List of Subjects in 13 CFR Part 121

    Government contracting programs, Small business subcontracting 

    Accordingly, 13 CFR part 121 is corrected by making the following 
correcting amendments:


1. The authority citation for part 121 continues to read as follows:

    Authority:  15 U.S.C. 632, 634(b)(6), 662, and 694a(9).

2. Amend Sec.  121.411 by redesignating the second paragraph (d) 
through paragraph (h) as paragraphs (e) through (i).
